When AEG/Telefunken of Western Germany closed their production facilities they still had a demand for their ECC803S audio tubes. They chose to continue there supply but to source them from some of the best European producers (e.g. Siemens & Halske, Brimar and Mullard). This ECC803S pair was made by Siemens & Halske in Münich Germany and is in fact an E83CC; one of the finest ECC83. AEG/Telefunken ordered a limited supply of these beauties for these non-diamond bottom ECC803S. To comply the very high quality specifications of the ECC803S, AEG undoubtedly has used selected versions of the S&H production only. 

The acid code EØ 1≠ 7A code on the glass indicates that the tubes are of the E83CC type and were manufactured in januari 1967 in the Siemens & Halske plant in Munich. The tubes have excellent test values that match the factory specification very well and balanced systems. 

Test method:

Mutual transconductance, plate current, gas and shorts tested with: AVO CT-160 (Dutch army tester), AVO Valve Data Manual 23rd edition 1981, Philips 1532, RFT stabilised power supply and 2x Keithley 2700.

Ia (plate current) is tested with 250V and a 1,6 kOhm cathode resistor (Rk; see Telefunken description). Factory specifications see picture !

Test results*:

The measurement data below show that both tubes are matched and balanced. And fully in line with the TELEFUNKEN specification for an ECC803S.


Section 1/2


Ia (plate current):           1,40 / 1,35 mA         = 116 % / 113 %

Mutual conductance:     1,80 / 1,85  mA/V    = 113 % / 116 %

Gas test, Shorts test:    OK
